10+ Games Mysteriously Added To Old Xbox Store, Backwards Compatibility Incoming?

Update: Max Payne 3 has also been spotted on the old marketplace - another one to add to the list!

Original story: There's been plenty of speculation that Microsoft might be looking to add new backwards compatible games to the Xbox library this Monday, November 15th, and now a random batch of classic titles has appeared on an old storefront.

11 games in all have been added to the Xbox 360 Marketplace, one of which is dated November 15th (Dead or Alive 3), and the rest of which are dated yesterday, November 10th. Here's a look at the list in full (thanks XboxEra):

  • Dead or Alive
  • Dead or Alive 2
  • Dead or Alive 3
  • Manhunt
  • Max Payne
  • Max Payne 2
  • Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee
  • Red Dead Revolver
  • Star Wars: Clone Wars
  • Star Wars: Episode III
  • Thrillville

None of these games are purchasable right now, and very few even have any box art, so they could just be there for testing purposes. However, considering the timeliness of their appearance, it does seem like something is going on.

We've only got a few days to wait until we (hopefully) get some answers, with Xbox's big 20th anniversary celebration event taking place on Monday, November 15th. Let's hope some of these classics get the back compat treatment!

Would you be excited if these were to be added on Monday? Give us your thoughts down below.
